My Music Monday
Now and then, I come across a song I don't know that I really like - like today's selection, "Cold Little Heart" by Michael Kiwanuka.
Ruckiry (not Jon's boss), unlike many of the few finds on XM, they haven't played this one to death (see: Portugal. The Man's "Feel it Still" or the Revivalists' "Wish I Knew You" - both horribly horribly horribly overplayed).
Still, "Cold Little Heart" is a great song - if I say so myself.
Soul enough. Rock enough. Pop enough. Good enough.
It's a great vocal and vocal arrangement. Good guitar work and the understated yet still powerful rhythm section.
I guess it came out a year ago - and I just missed it all. It's new to me. Maybe to you too.
...and there is a new feature on YouTube that lets me dictate when the video starts when I embed it. You might have noticed it started at the 1:11 mark. There is an intro that adds nothing. Allegedly on the album the intro is over 4 minutes.
I want you to listen to the song, not be bored before the music actually starts.
